The annual meeting held in Goteborg, Sweden, on 9th-10th June, was an unique opportunity to share and discuss about the results obtained by NANORESTART researchers during the first year of activity. The partners were hosted by CUT and AKZO, which also organized a nice dinner on a boat. Here you can find a gallery of picture taken during the event.
Whaam! is comprised of three different paint types, and this makes cleaning particularly challenging. This challange may be alleviated by the novel cleaning strategies introduced through the NANORESTART project.
In order to perform preliminary cleaning tests, several mockups were prepared by TATE researchers, mimicking the original artist's techniques. Samples are currenlty being artificially aged before proceeding to the next step.
Further information about this part of TATE researchers work is reported in the NANORESTART section of TATE website.
Updates will be soon available there and in the Achievements section of the NANORESTART project.
A Post-Doc position supported by the EU project NANORESTART is available at TATE.
The closing date for applications is 19th January 2017.

In January 2017, Piero Baglioni and Rodorico Giorgi (CSGI) lectured on the EU-funded project NANORESTART, during a four-day workshop on Nanotechnologies in Conservation at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY.
The workshop focused on some of the technologies CSGI developed for conservation of cultural heritage: gels, microemulsions, and nanoparticle solutions. Conservators specializing in varied disciplines from institutions and private practices on the east coast attended the workshop.
